Career advice

Nice to meet a RedHater then! ;)

A standard subscription will cost nearly 7500$. In fact the employer have to pay for such expensive courses :eek:. I wanna go for this one> Red Hat System Administration I


One funny fact is that the price changing dramatically over different locations. If you set to Bangladesh then its only 625$ and where Linus Torvalds has born, this cost you 2700$.

RedHat certification, looks like a box of candy where each one costs millions. Its not red policy despite the name they carry out. The same rule applies here> You have to be rich to become rich.

If you have the RHCA certification you get a 50% on the Red Hat learning Subscription. I suppose the different costs for the learning subscription is because of the costs of living being more expensive in the West than in the East. You can study on your own for the RHCSA and RHCE, it's just the exam you then would have to pay for yourself or your employer. The exams costs about $600 dollar per exam, that's still a big amount but better than having to pay for the whole training. I also mentioned something in your Linux certifed professionals topic.

Hey Stockholm Lady :)

I may be saying what you have already thought out.

Résumé/C-V

A résumé and a C-V (Latin Curriculum Vitae) are usually interchangeable in many countries, except in the USA, where a résumé is competency-based and a C-V is credential-based and usually longer and more detailed.

Head Hunters

Not a South American tribe who take your head off, shrink it, and wear it as a necklace, but companies or agencies that act as an intermediary between a job-seeker and an employer looking for staff.

Besides I have to say that when I was in college I wrote a paper more here about creer goals, it really helped me a lot to get a good grade and besides it gave me an understanding of what I would like to do in life.

Certifications

Kali have one, as does Redhat. Do the courses/certificates.

Servers

Linux is the industry leader in server technology. Some through RHEL (Red Hat Enterprise Linux), some through SLES (SUSE Linux Enterprise Server), some through Ubuntu, and there are others.

WINDOWS

Who said that? Eek!!! :eek:

Get fluent in Windows as used by employees in companies you may work for. These companies may have Windows on the workstations but run Linux Servers.

RSS Feeds

Subscribe to some, so that you keep up-to-date on the cyber-security industry.

Passport

Keep it current, you may have to travel to perform work. And to that effect

Another Language

Be prepared to learn one. You already have Swedish and English.

Stay Employed

... while undertaking the above, if you can, do everything you can online to get the credentials, but keep paid - you don't know where/when your first paycheck will happen in your chosen vocation. Your social life may have to take a back seat if you have to study after work.

I will not wish you good luck, luck should not factor into it. But I DO wish you all the best.

Wizard
wow, nice post, I too am just starting work and until I situate what concrete I would like to do. But this post makes me believe in my powers even more. This is really great.
